obama defied the polls and predictions in an election that was expected to be one of the closest in history, even with florida tonight still up in the air. the president won more than 300 a tour of votes to secure another four years in the oval office. many republicans are left in shock at the results asking how with 23 million people unemployed almost 8 percent unemployment, record national debt in excess of $16 trillion, scandals and controversies from operation fast and furious, the benghazi cover-up, how could president obama possibly win reelection so impressively? a popular vote margin of more than 2 million votes, but an electoral vote margin of almost 100. an examination of the fox news exit polling data shows the obama campaign won big with key constituencies, and a strong showing by the democratic base responsible for putting the president over the top. president obama drawing on the latino community. xbox projecting 71% of hispanics voted for the president. that number up from 67% in 2008 and, of course, the historic level. the president's support among black voters ac
these developments has been managed, and if so, to what purpose. today two days after the president's election, we learned that two iranian fighter jets, like this one, attacked one of our unmanned an unarmed predator drones. that attack took place 16 miles off the coast of kuwait in international airspace. happened last thursday, but an administration official has remained silent until today. today we learned that boeing will be slashing another 10 percent of management jobs in its defense division by the end of thii year in an effort to cut more than $2 billion in costs. boeing says it cannot project exactly how many workers will lose their jobs as a result. and boeing is going to some great lengths to insist that these layoffs have nothing to do whatsoever with the sequestered defense cuts set to take place next year. you will recall that less than two months ago the obama white house was so intent on avoiding publicity like this it offered to indemnify government contractors for losses and find if they held off on issuing left notices. that is required by the warrant act until after the electi

evening, everybody. the presidential election, the balance of power in congress has been decided, but this is certainly not the new beginning president obama had once envisioned. with the country set to hit the so-called fiscal cliff at year's end president obama and congress are seemingly committed to repeating their rhetoric and, perhaps, their mistakes as they ostensibly work toward avoiding the calamity of going over that fiscal clef. house speaker this morning made it clear. he thinks this is the president's moment, and he called upon the president to lead, and he called on the president to find middle ground between a bitterly divided republican house and democratically controlled senate now, this is an opportunity for the president to lead. >> this is his moment to engage the congress and work toward a solution that can pass both chambers. and earlier this week the president and i had a short conversation. it was cordial. i think we both understand that trying to find a way to avert the fiscal cliff is important for our country. lou: the speaker also noted that when he cam

the willows report is next. rri: >> hello. morning quarterbacking on the election has begun to billions of dollars of campaign spending and what we have to show? not much. the same president the same congress the same problems. the fiscal cliff that pushes our economy into another recession. the lower economy and higher taxes a bad cocktail. , promised a new era but that reminds me of groundhog's day. it is great to have my guess here. the perfect do well to talk monday morning quarterback. yourself awful the president today actually calling on boehner and harry reid to say we have to come together. we could have seen more of that from the first administrations that he is doing it now. what are the odds they get together? >> everyboby hopes they are high but you want to avoid the high stakes game of chicken and during the lame duck session. that could have been. but his willingness to meet with mitt romney and boehner to resolve the situation. but if you heard voters press conference he sounds like he is the same position under no circumstances will taxes ever be raised. ger

of representatives. they were elected with a written commitment to their constituents, not to me. clearly they are committed to opposing his tax increases. gerri: grover, you're not asking my question. if they were to come to you individually, will you work with us, what would you say? >> the same thing that happened two years ago. when the exact same situation would have been. holding his breath until he turned blue. the republican said, thank you very much, we're not going to raise taxes and the president signed a two-year extension. gerri: but will it happen again? you think we wilget anywhere on this or will we find ourselves flying over the fiscal cliff? >> obama has several problems. one is he doesn't want to throw the country into a worse economy and he's already created. he will extend the tax cuts for another two years. exactly what he did two years ago. the cuts in spending from the sequestration -- those will take it back. that is good for the economy because it is the only spending restraint. gerri: some people don't think so. especially with iran right now in parts of the mid

the election last week, charlie gasparino, on all of this. what do you make? >> i think this is bad stuff. if the republican cave, which i don't think they will, i'll tell you why later, and they give in market hates it, you talk about raising taxes on rich that is small businessa file as individual they tell you that is never% of small business -- 97% of small businesses, don't get affected by this but they employee most people in the country. we're not talks the freelance writers that call themselves a small business. neil: i don't think that the president cares? >> he does not care, this election is worse case, we called this a fiscal cliff scenario, president went to narrow majority but he still wins. and republicans keep the house, you have a fiscal cliff scenario, and they are emboldened, and republicans say you don't have a mandate, and you have loggerheads, i believe that the fiscal cliff is basically the -- odds on favorite here, not a compromise, republican -- >> would republicans then -- or democrats, play this to their advantage. if you come totten of the year, this is preside
after the election . taxes are going for individuals and businesses. do they dump the people on medicare and you will see another thing happen, fewer full-time yobs and not catching up in obamacare. >> rick unger, it is not just businesss and folks of businesses making over $150,000.ine those making $50,000 or more it will cost them money . it is going to cost and maybe it is good in the long run but it costs. >> the arguments remind me what we heard in the 60s when fica taxes were doubled to pay for medicare . we survived. you would not imagine calls i have had business owners and cancer survivors it is going to survive and now the law of the land. we'll talk about it in three years and not going to cost a yob. jobs are going to grow. >> is this a rick unger. are you willing to put money on the bet? >> i am absolutely willing to put my money on it >> mike, in fact they put together a list of people who are going to be affected from different income. it will cost you if you are making $50,000 and $75,000 it is $1600. not just the rich and business owners that pay this. >> no, why is the
not -- what they learned, as i was just suggesting, is that the president's attitude before the election was totally political and security for the reelection. if you remember, april 2011 when they thought they had the proposal on the deficit, went to george washington university to listen to the president gives his counterproposal, he vilified them. and it never stopped doing that for the next year-and-a-half of through the election. the big question is, when we heard from speaker painter, what exactly is going to be the president's opening bid? dagen: four years out, what do you expect to see in terms of social security, medicare, tax cut. >> i think it's going to be very difficult. if the republicans managed to do some of reach, public opinion. and in the election they did have -- romney did have support for his positions on medicare. that was not repudiate. the public does realize at this point that they need to reform those two entitlements. i think they have a basis, at least, for making that argument with president obama and the democrats, but it's going to be difficult. connell:
. charles: democrats feel the election was a mandate to raise taxes on the rich. that could hold up any deal this democrat senator, kent conrad. >> and look, you can't settle every detail in these next few weeks, what you can do is agree on a frame work agreement this sets out for the committees of jurisdiction how much they need to say it, how much money needs to be raised, what we can also do, is have a significant down payment so the markets understand we're serious about this. charles: meanwhile, the president will spend the week trying to get various groups, including the public to support his version of a compromise. and david, what do you think. >> meet the new boss, same as the old boss, this is the same thing, reduction part two and obama is not going to change, he's a progressive and he's got the flexibility. charles: flexibility. >> to talk to putin about it and same people to put on a dog and pony show, look, he has no reason not to. he doesn't have to run again. charles: i'm worried we saw in before and same people going to capitol hill and the same results. the opening bell aft
